This paper investigates whether, and if yes, under what conditions, cloud-based collaboration technologies have improved company performance in the high-tech, media and telecom (TMT) industries. Two results stand out. First, while adoption of collaboration technologies in TMT is ahead of other industries, collaboration technologies diffusion is correlated with improved company performance. Second, the extent of performance impact is strongly firm-specific, but common factors to all firms explain success, such as the intensity of collaboration within employees, and through suppliers and customers; and the extent to which organizational changes have been made to effectively leverage those technologies.
